At the beginning of 2017, I moved over 1000 miles away from everything I know – my family, my job, and my friends from childhood – to start a new life with my husband. It was a fresh start, but so, so difficult. I was emotional, tested mentally many times, and my anxiety was at its highest point. I overcame so many obstacles in one year with the love and support of my husband, my family, and in particular my cousin, who I gave a key of STRENGTH.
She also moved across the country away from home a few years back to pursue a career, but instead she found her true self and STRENGTH along the way. She's helped guide me and motivate me to find STRENGTH in myself.
This year, I had to be her STRENGTH, as she suddenly lost her mother to a horrible disease that had greatly affected her. Through this, she remained strong, even more motivated to follow her dreams and truly do what makes her happy. I am so proud of the person she's become.
